thoughts around healthcare cost overall. question today, rising healthcare costs accumulating with fiscal liabilities represent significant challenge. >> our obligations for providing quality and affordable health care for our city employees without jeopardizing the city's fiscal solvency is a priority of mine in the challenge that we have to take together. this year will spend 574 million dollars for the health care of our current employees retirees and dependents, about seven point eight percent of our city spending. in addition to annual bending for healthcare we have an equally significant issue on the horizon. the unfunded cost of paying for healthcare for all current employees once they retire. last november 2012 the city assessed our retiree health-care obligations an estimated the unfunded liability to be 4.4 billion dollars. over the past several years we have taking a number of important steps to address the structural budget issues associated with employee benefits in healthcare. in 2008 the city passed proposition c, charter amendment that lengthen the amount of time an empl

restaurants that are not following the city's healthcare law. the long list. sharon tells us they are charging customers extra, but not giving all that extra money back to employees who deserve it. >> when you dine out in san francisco, you pay a little extra to help fund the worker's healthcare, but the city attorney says dozens of restaurants aren't using all that money for their employees. some people find it hard to swallow. >> i think it's terrible. as it is, the waiters and staff are letting off tips and don't normally get full benefits. >> they can stop charging 4.5% on my bill. >> san francisco city attorney is telling 50 restaurants to clean up their act in three months. >> by doing so, they can avoid litigation by my office for consumer fraud. >> we don't know which of the city's thousands of restaurants are under investigation, but we obtained a list of 100 who have taken more money than they paid out. in 2011, chef michael collected more than half a million dollars in healthcare surcharges. actually spent about $200,000 for employee's healthcare. for a profit of $327,000. the
consumption. a big thing the chinese save for its health-care. if we can build a health-care system in china to create a safety net that frees up the link to go into domestic consumption. cheryl: to chinese employers pay for health care? >> no. rich: you think that model in the u.s. has to change? >> will change. we will see with the beginning of the exchange that the comes into the mario draghi. liz: employers will start saying can't cover it? >> it is different than that. what is happening is employers had passed off 50% of the increase in health-care costs to their employees. very slowly but surely employees are picking up larger and larger portions of health care. if the trend continues in the next five years employees will be paying as much for their health care as employers are so even if there's -- individuals will be shopping, they will be looking for the best deal and we will have a consumer market place regardless. liz: when you look at how the insurance industry has changed, what do you privately and i asking a of fox business viewers, what do you think we could do this so much be

rhetoric, about universal healthcare, and who should get that... should that be extended to the entire population? i think a good place to start is with the children. my god, we should be trying to take care of our children. you know, the issues about adults are very complex, and, you know-- many adults-- the reasons they're unhealthy are because of things they do themselves or do to themselves. but kids are incredibly vulnerable, and i would think it would have to be a priority of ours to try and protect and ensure their health. marc shiffman: there are too many people out there... who are senior citizens-- fixed low income. medicare is their only insurance, and as they get older, as they get sicker, as they need more medications, they are having to make difficult choices. - hi. how are you doing today? - hello, mrs. phillips. - how are you? - it's good to see you. my social worker spends some time almost every day calling up drug companies, filling out forms to get special dispensations for medications. people break pills in half to stretch them, or they just go without because they'
in san franciscan mean you will pay extra for a healthcare surcharge. we broke this story exclusively several months ago that restaurants were collecting cash from customers but not making it available to employees. our investigation first uncovered a few restaurants that were breaking the law. today, we're learning from the city attorney the problem is more widespread. part of the dining experience in san francisco is paying a little more to help cover your server's healthcare. >> we're here today to announce -- >> reporter: but according to the city attorney, many restaurants will be breaking the law. he is now telling nearly 50 of them to clean up their acts or get charged with fraud. >> they charge surcharges to be in compliance with san francisco's universal healthcare law but use little or none of the funds to provide healthcare benefits to employees. >> reporter: he won't disclose the names of the restaurants under investigation but sent out warning letters giving them three months to come forward. we have obtained a list of nearly 100 rest

not know if the health-care cost dragon has been slain or is just hibernating. how much of the slow increase comes from the sluggish economic recovery where people without insurance postpone care over which they don't have any kind of discretion at all, and what about the chronic conditions that continued the development of more sophisticated and expensive treatments and tasks? and for the most expensive health care program there is the fact that 10,000 baby boomers are joining me in the over 65 club every day. despite the encouraging numbers about 2011 there is still a lot about this issue to be discussed and analyzed. and here we are with what i think is going to be a very good program on that topic. we are fairly pleased to have, as our partner in today's program, the commonwealth fund. and we are especially pleased to have as our co-moderator today, dr. david blumenthal. i will mention that his policy an analyst -- on top of his policy and analytical expertise he is a care -- welcome to your first online briefing as the head of commonwealth. we are pleased to have you here. >> i

think the president did pretty well, when you look at healthcare reform. every president for the last hundred years has tried it. barack obama did it. he ended the war in iraq. he is winding down the war in afghanistan. he brought us out of that comic hole partly through the stimulus which created what was it? over 5 million new jobs, saved the auto industry, brought this economy back. it still has a long ways to go. got the star treaty approved by the united states.s. senate and remember, he did get osama bin laden, led this country on the issue of same-sex marriage, the first president to do so. pardon me, and the point is, two great women to the supreme court. now, looking ahead, that's the first question. what do you think about that first term? 866-55 press. are you yesterday? second, what do you want to see in the second term? i tell you what we are already seeing: a lot more backbone on the part of president obama. it is worken, proven by the fact that the republicans in the house caved over the weekend on the debt ceiling and said, all right. they
